so much for sunshine…

well last week it was sunshine and roses (literally) and this week it’s rain and snow…

i flew home for a long weekend with the fam. it’s been a few months since i’ve been here and i have to say, it’s always nice coming home. i’m also home for the wedding of a beautiful couple :) so excited to see them say “i do” and commit to a lifetime of love together. not only is the couple amazing, i know their wedding will be phenomenal! the bride has been working HARD on DIY things for months. i can’t wait to see how everything comes together!

so, i used my lovely phone to snap a few pictures from my travels today. i’m loving the instagram app for the iPhone. it has some pretty great filters that make pictures look great! take a look…

here’s a picture of the beautiful snow-capped, southern california mountains from the plane…

and here’s what i found when the plane landed… cold.wet.rain.

needless to say, this week is the polar opposite of last. but beautiful nonetheless :)

i also have to share a little story with you… those of you that are friends on facebook, you probably already saw/heard this. but anyways, at the airport, there was the CUTEST little boy running around with a superman shirt, belt, and cape. with both parents and little sister close by, he zipped through the terminals with the cape blowing in the wind behind him. his face was filled with determination and pure joy. he looked indestructible. nothing was stopping him… let me just say that this is THE reason i love working with kids. they don’t hold back, they live in the moment, and they can find joy in life’s most simple things- in this case, a red cape. there is this zeal that they carry with them and i just can’t get enough.

so here’s to you superman… thanks for making me smile and feel inspired to run with a red cape and live with eagerness for today and this moment.

    Kristen,

    I love the way in which you view the world through grace, love, and caring eyes! Your awe in God’s handiwork blows me away–I’m sure He is pleased with your heart! You do YOU well!

      what a compliment! thank you crystal!!
      have to find ways to see Him each day… it’s easy to get too caught up in things that are just not worth it!! and i think you may know what i mean ;)

    i might just start wearing a red cape around the house to give you some inspiration and motivation ;) jk. I love you and am excited to see how these next few weeks play out for you and your program. You are going to make an incredible Child Life Specialist someday and people will continue to be inspired by the lens of grace and hope you choose to look through and give. Love you :)
